Re-visiting Our Principles “Pay Forward” #253

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Re-visiting Our Principles. Let us restate our Principle. We are surrounded by an Infinite Possibility and an indwelling Presence within. I have an abiding faith in and of our Father’s loving grace. My faith began in A.A. as I saw others living it. When I began living A.As’ spiritual principles I received the faith that works for me, my faith turned into reality, enabling me to have an increasing faith in our Father, and in Alcoholics Anonymous. I soon had a driving need for a working relationship with a Higher Power. I was not alone. Our Big Book makes a strong statement for people like me on page 45. “Lack of power that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves. Obviously…Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem.” I accepted the premise that I had to stay sober to travel my serendipity Spiritual journey. That freed me to spend much of my time and energy on my primary purpose, seeking, finding and living my Spiritual mission, embodied in Alcoholics Anonymous. The workbooks and workshops I have written are based on my radical studies and dedicated service, and A.As’ literature. My greatest Hero is Jesus Christ and I live His teaching daily embodied in A.As’ Spiritual principles. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
